Fanatical Republican Extremist Of The Day: Gail Griffin- 2021 Update
"On this date in 2020, as well as 2021, “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day” first profiled Gail Griffin, a member of the Arizona House of Representatives from District 14 who has bounced around the Arizona state legislature in either chamber on and off since 1997 (she has one term of eligibility left in the lower chamber, and is already term-limited from ever serving again in the Arizona State Senate.) And, it takes a special kind of stupid to stand out among Arizona Republicans to get a FRED profile, but Griffin, whose brain may be under undue pressure from the helmet of hair she’s sporting, managed to get our notice in early January of 2019 when she filed a bill to try and pay for Donald Trump’s stupid f***ing idea for a wall on the U.S./Mexico border by establishing a new tax on… INTERNET PORN."
